Latin Patriarch of Alexandria

The Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls, which was the Roman seat of the Latin Patriarch of Alexandria.

This is a list of the Latin Patriarchs of Alexandria established in 1215 during the pontificate of Pope Innocent III. Unlike the Latin Patriarchs of the other Eastern Sees (Antioch, Constantinople, and Jerusalem), the office was always purely titular, as Alexandria and Egypt were never controlled by western Christians. His patriarchal seat in Rome was the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls. The titular office was abolished in 1964.
